Productive and fun working place with ongoing training and opportunity to progress

Would recommend if you are keen in customer service and giving advice about store products. Great way to learn about products, trade, and to get trained.

Management Sucks

The team is really great but the management sucks, they treat us badly if they don't like us and you get in trouble if you can't do holidays as a casual.

Great Bussiness

Working at Bunnings is great, you learn a lot of customer service and gain alot of knowledge in different areas of the business and trainning is always available if you needed.

Great Workplace with friendly and supportive community

This workplace was particularly enjoyable to work in as the community was generally very friendly and supportive which made me motivated to work more often

Stressful Workplace

The interview process was relaxed, the managers, regional managers came across polite and friendly. Training was basic. Was told I would have a work buddy during first cpl of shifts - never happened. Learned quickly that floor staff have a poor relationship with management - found out why. Bunnings are very “community” focused - very much about there brand and pleasing customers. No matter how hard you try, a disgruntled customer who is having a bad day can make a complaint simply because you couldn’t find something quickly enough and that is enough to annoy the managers. They are more worried about keeping customers happy - your not there priority. You can be bullied, harassed and you have no one from management to help you. If you try to say anything your shifts dry up and your let go - “business decision”... at least a dozen have left my store over past few weeks due to the managers. Take my advice - try something else!

Poor management

Poor Management

Working on the floor can be difficult yet rewarding. Long hours standing. Great teams members, only problem is management. Bunnings philosophy is all about keeping customers happy - no matter what! If you blink the wrong way, management pounce on u. It’s a blame first culture. A lot of bullying and intimidation from above. Research the culture - highly recommended avoiding Bunnings. Not worth the stress!

managment needs work

There is a lack of trained and knowledgeable management which really shows. Not just in the knowledge of the items in the areas they are the leaders of but just simple things like rostering and communication.

Depends on your Manager To Be Honest

The Co-workers you will befriend are what make the job so amazing. Apart from that, management are mainly concerned about achieving their monthly budgets to display a "good" image and earn a bonus or promotion, meanwhile turning a blind eye to properly reducing Safety Incidents. Honestly, Great Pay for Casuals and decent for contracted Team. However, job security is very poor and your chances of picking up a contract after starting as casual are slim to none.

A good team culture

I absolutely loved working at Bunnings, the team culture was second to none, I would recommend the job to anyone. In the busy times, everyone pulls together, team members help out throughout the store. The management, also get their hands dirty, by spending more time on the floor.

Good people, hard work, family friendly

I loved working at Bunnings - a good team culture only thing is if you aren't one of the old, entrenched people who have worked there forever... they will only employ very young people (14-15) who they can pay low wages to. Hard to get your foot back in the door if you leave

Great team and people

Bunnings is a great place to work at. The diversity, support and team are second to none, and management are flexible and are really vigilant regarding safety for employees and customers alike.

productive and fun environment

Help customers with day to day enquiries and stack shelves with new products. use pallet jacks to carry heavy items to specified shelving. Use coding system to find miss placed items.

Productive and encouraging workplace- I miss it

Awesome environment working alongside like minded people bringing a wide range of dreams to life. I really enjoyed dealing with the public bar a few abusive customers. Bunnings is the only place I have worked where they train you for everything :safety regularly,sales,theft and loss prevention, acknowlodgement for great customer service, etc. The only issue now is that I have been trying to get back into their workforce and have been unsuccessful twice after getting through to the final part and then been told that it was due to a high caliber of applicants. Very disappointing

Productive and hands on work place

Great retail store to work at. Mostly organised, would definitely recommend to a friend who is looking for a retail job. I have learnt a-lot at my time at Bunnings, literally knew next to nothing when I started my first shift but now I have extensive product knowledge, which is quite handy.

Great team concept family orientated.

Majority of management promote an all inclusive fair and enjoyable workplace, very family orientated and great to work for, but they expect their ounce if sweat out if you.


Great team spirit, family focus


Hard work at times, under trained supervisors.

Excellent workplace

Bunnings has been a fantastic place to work, my staff are extremely supportive and encourage me to push myself and gain more responsibility. Management is very encouraging and allow me to expand my skills in any direction I want. My autonomy and skills in work have grown significantly since being part of this work force.
